Computer security is relatively mature and most users know how to protect their personal computers from hackers and virus attacks. However, mobile phone security is a new concept and the risks of not protecting the data on our phones is just as, if not more dangerous.
Mobile phones have become an essential part of our lives, bringing us many conveniences that are hard to live without. Since we usually have our phones with us all the time, we put many important photos, videos, notes and even passwords on our phones, not to mention our text messages, call records and contact information.
Aside from being more careful when we use our phones, what else can we do to improve our mobile phone security? CoverMe suggests 5 tips to improve your mobile phone security.
